Star Moon



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

In early July I was trying to get a picture of the moon through the branches of a tree in our front yard. This isn't exactly what I was expecting to get, but I rather like it.

I rather like it too, George. It looks like the star of Bethlehem.

I like your photo too George, it’s very nice for being unexpected! Your words made me laugh a bit though since a good number of my photos tend to fall into the category of “this isn’t exactly what I was expecting to get”.
